Things Every Woman Should Have And Should Know; Do You?

  I’m on week 12 or so of not being able to write or type due to a tenacious case of tennis elbow. My temporary disability has given me a lot of time to reflect. On a good day the fear, fatigue & frustration gives way to empathy, insight &  perspective.  (On a bad day […]

Take time to to’odle and you’ll reach your dreams faster

I love lists.  I covet lists.  I crave making lists.  Lists relax me.  They keep my delusion of being in control of my world firmly in place. I have a confession to make however.  At the end of a bad day, my eyes will skittishly wander towards a list only to streak away faster than […]

What’s on your to done list? Yep, your to done list.

Have lots of time on your hands?  More than enough resources to do what you want to do?  Do you regularly feel in charge, competent, controlled? Is relaxed your middle name? Yes?  Then please send me the name of the deserted island you’re living on. No?  Then welcome to the rest of the world. Fifth […]

Scratch to do lists. What’s on your not to do list?

  Chances are if I ask what’s on your to-do list you’ll be able to pull 1 (or 10) out of your Blackberry, IPhone, daytimer and/or nightstand.  Or out of your brain matter if you’re not the scribing type.  Chances are your list is long.  Chances are it weighs you down. What about lightening the […]

Stop in the name of sanity; see what’s on Danielle LaPorte’s & other’s ‘no way Jose’ list

Stop in the name of … love?  Peace? Sanity?  Self-preservation? Yes.  Stop. Third in a series, this post collects some wonderful musings of what some equally wonderful folk want to stop doing.  Far from filling up their plates with more to-do’s, these are things they want to take off their plates. The series includes things […]

The ‘to-continue’ lists of some very interesting folk

Wondering what this year will bring to your door?  Wondering which paths to embark on and which to pass? Based on a series of posts I did last year on my to-do, to continue doing, to stop doing, not to do, to-done, and to’odle lists, this year I thought I’d ask which particular paths a […]

Peek at the to-do lists of some right interesting folk

Last year round about now I did a series of posts on my to-do, to continue doing, to stop doing, not to do, to-done, and to’odle lists.  (See below for a quick summary of each and a link to download a template to create your own.) This year I thought I’d ask some right interesting […]

What does it take to win Olympic gold in women’s ski cross?

On the last day of the Every Woman conference I got to listen to Ashleigh McIvor, the first Olympic gold winner of the women’s ski cross at the recent Winter Olympics.  She’s tall and lithe and she had some surprising things to say. How often do you think she thought about winning gold? Would it […]

Because Laughing Matters

I’m teaching a workshop on Friday called ‘Because Laughing Matters‘ at the Every Woman conference in Whistler, British Columbia.  This is a topic dear to my heart.  And if it’s not dear to your heart it should be because: humour is strategic, it primes the brain for learning – when we’re laughing we’re using the […]
